The Morrisons Foundation has kindly donated £5,000 to East Kent Mencap. The donation will be used to run a health and wellbeing project focused on healthy eating and physical activity, helping people with a learning disability to become more independent and lead healthier lifestyles.
The cheque was presented on behalf of the Foundation by Lorraine Holden from the Morrisons store in Margate, who said: “We were delighted to present this cheque to a charity which supports people with disabilities in our local community.”
Kimberley Besant from East Kent Mencap said: “For participants to fully understand how important a healthy diet and exercise are to their heart health they need regular support. The funding from the Morrisons Foundation means that we can continue the work we have been undertaking on how to lead a healthy lifestyle.”
The Morrisons Foundation was set up by Morrisons supermarkets in 2015 and awards grants for charity projects which help to improve people’s lives. Since launching over £15 million has been donated to hundreds of charities across England, Scotland and Wales.
